A question about joysticks.

Post by MrErickson » Mon Nov 11, 2019 7:44 pm

I've got a Circuit sword coming soon and have been considering adding a joystick to this build. I've seen builds with a joystick in the lower left corner, the center and both. My question for those that have done builds with joy sticks is do you have a preference for location?

I have a couple of test shells that I try different things on, I'll probably add a joystick in each spot and see if i feel any difference in one spot vs. the other.

I'd love to know what those of you that have done builds with them think, it may bring up something I hadn't considered.

Thanks!

Actually, I feel like the lower left corner is more comfortable of the two. The middle one is too close to the buttons. Using that left one just causes you to hold it at a slight angle but it’s not terrible.

I have large hands and I prefer it in the middle because then my thumb is extended instead of bent to use it. I think your idea is a good one. Try it in either position and see what you like best.
